Natural History Museum

Educating and inspiring the next generation of bright minds

As part of our partnership with the Wildlife Photographer of the Year at the Natural History Museum, we are supporting access to curated days of activities at the Museum for schools that might not otherwise have this opportunity, helping to encourage interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects.

Here are a few activities we are currently participating in:

Generate: Scientists of the Future

This initiative is aimed at building relationships with schools and students over a three year period to help shape pupils’ attitudes to and aspirations in science.  Inspired by the acclaimed ASPIRES research project run by King’s College London, this new initiative seeks to build ‘science capital’ amongst students –  developing greater understanding, knowledge, interest and connections to science, scientists and scientific careers.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Now in its 54th instalment, Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the longest running and most prestigious photographic event of its kind in the world - showcasing the beauty of the planet we call home and the wildlife that inhabits it, while raising awareness of the threats facing them. Each year, it attracts tens of thousands of entries from professionals and amateurs across almost 100 countries.

We hosted a photo competition where we encourage our employees to take some photographs of the natural world. You can find the winning entrants and a bit more about our photographers by clicking the link below.
